1. First of all, you must switch off the power at the breaker or fuse panel. Having done it you should replace the light device. A ceiling fan is a dynamic physical load which is quite weighty. So when there is no a fan rated box, you should change the old box with one that is.
2. In a case that there is no central light device, you should find the center of the space. For it, you fix a new fan rated junction box directly to the nearest beam. Then tie diagonal chalk lines from opposite corners of the space and they will cross in the center.
Step 2. Junction box installation
1. There are two kinds of boxes now. The first is a box is made for vary beam, the second is for moveable one. They are both easy to set up and can work well equally.
2. When you decide, where a fan should be set up, think about power. You can cut a hole in the plasterboard with the size of all your hand around. It helps you to make sure that there is no any obstruction and in a case if you choose an incorrect location.
3. When you can’t see any obstructions, for instance, wires or pipes, you set a junction box up on the ceiling and cut it out the plasterboard.
4. Also, you must remember the next rule: don’t connect different size wires together. Despite the location, if your power source is 12 wires, you can use 12-2 or 12-3 and never 14-2 or 14-3.
5. When you bought a fan with a wireless remote, you can power it directly from a 120-volt outlet plug or install a new switch box: the white wires together and the ground wires (green or bare) together with a wire connector. After that, you should connect the two black wires that would connect to the switch together.
6. You can employ 14.2 cables to power the fan on and off from one switch or to power the fan or light on and off with an RF remote with the fan or separately.
7. You can employ 14.3 cables to run the fan and light by two switches separately.
8. 14.3 cables let run wiring ways described up reaching max flexibility.
9. Direct the cable into the fan box through the holes with help of suit connectors.
10. And fix the junction box according to set instructions. New ceiling fans can vibrate by starting. Sure that your mount will sustain. So the National Electrical Code instructs use rated boxes that can reduce the risk to be injured.
11. Decide: will you need an additional mount. There can be no such mount in your set. Most fan sets come with a standard mount. If your ceiling is low, buy a down rod.
Step 3. Wire the fan
1. When you take 14.2 or 12.2 cable, join wires according to color coding scheme (white to white, black to black).
2. Taking 14.3 or 12.3 cables, there are red, black, white, bare cables. Join them as said up.
3. When you have two different wall switches, join bare, green cables, white to white. Then red cable to the screw on the first switch as black cable to the second switch.
4. In a case that you have one wall switch, join wires how they were described above. Running light via wall switch, join black wire (fan) to the power source, red – the switch.
5. For any remotes: black, white wires (fan) join to a power source. According set instructions to join power source color to remote input color. Fan color is joined remote output color.
6. Hide every attachment with a wire nut. For convenience, employ a hook.
Step 4. The fan assembling
1. Read set instructions. Firstly fix prongs, but not hard. They are ought to be set to the motor housing too. Lock blades that can have a reversible fastener. Do it gently, not scratch the cover.
2. During installing you take helpers to do it accurately.
3. Some standard instructions can’t suit your ceiling, so in a case when blades are shorter than a screwdriver’s size, set up them until mounting a fan.
4. Fans come with a speed ring. It let fix blades on it, later join such construction on an installed motor with rubber grommets, screws. Fix your art cover plate on them.
Step 5. How to hang the fan
1. Firstly, you mount the hanger using screws and spring washers. The producers present two types of a hanger – half-ball and hook.
2. Fix a canopy to the motor housing. In a case of high ceilings mount a pipe.
3. Set up a motor unit that you have already assembled.
4. Sure that you attach all color wires correctly and close wires with a wire nut. Also, attach wires inside the canopy to the mounting bracket.
5. Tighten a cover closely.
6. Set the motor to bracket, take “on” of your fan and light. Sure that you have done it perfectly.
Step 6. Light set up
1. Opening a cap you see wires marked for a light kit: white, black, red. Modern ceiling fans integrated with light come with a plug.
2. In the end of an installation, you must join the adapter ring.
3. Pass two wires through the adapter ring. Connect two white to a wire connector and two black, red or blue wires to a wire connector and the wire bracket. Fix light unit to your fan.
4. When all mentioned steps you have done, turn the power on. So you realize, can your fan work. Don’t forget about wobbling.
